Kent Fiddy Dreams & Destiny

Songwriter. Poet. Storyteller of History. These are just some of the words which have been used to describe Kent Douglas Fiddy. There is, today, a phenomenal and burgeoning interest in the history of British Columbia. This is perhaps the result of its newly found maturity, independence and sense of destiny based on the Pacific experience. The music of Kent Douglas Fiddy celebrates an enormously rich but hitherto untapped vein of B.C. cultural heritage. The earliest contact with First Nations peoples, the extraordinary sea voyages of Captains Cook and Vancouver, the courage and determination of immigrant people from Europe and Asia, coal-mining on Vancouver Island, shipwrecks on the West Coast Trail, and the working heroes stationed on lonely, remote lighthouses. These all are part of the thread in the tapestry woven by Kent Douglas Fiddy. Inspired, evocative and compelling, his music has the power to take you on a journey across the curve of time.
